Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bronzey-gold This dress felt lovely on - long and flowy, a good weight of cotton and (best of all) pockets, but the colours were not as shown in the catalogue, and lacked that lovely bronzey-gold lustre. Instead it was more of a baby blue / pink, and seemed perhaps overly fussy too. Not for me. Returned ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pretty and good fit I'm a little over 5'8" and 128 lbs. Size 6 fit perfectly. While side pockets don't always lay flat as they're supposed to, these do. Color matched photo. Nice go-to dress for lots of occasions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress I have it as do two of my friends. They are much curvier than i am but i think that it looks great on all three of us. Lovely colors, fresh and soft.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Odd line across chest & sleeves. Fabric too heavy. I bought this dress for a summer wedding after purchasing the Windsor dress for the holidays, which was reviewed as being being similar in cut, fit and style. The Windsor has long sleeves and fit wonderfully, with the only problem being that the Windsor fabric is too light for winter, requiring a silk slip plus a wool shawl to be warm enough indoors for Midwestern winters. By contrast, the short sleeved Anneliese is oddly cut with the short sleeves visually extending the horizontal seam across the chest, making my bust and arms appear wider than wide. Perhaps this is an acceptable cut if one is skeletally thin, as are the product models at 6' tall in size S, but being of more typical weight in my mid 50s, the cut was awful. Also odd is that the weight of the Anneliese material is substantially thicker and heavier than that of the Windsor. Not good for summer! Truly, I hope Peruvian Connection swaps the lightweight material of the Windsor and for that of the thicker Anneliese dress, and vice-versa. Restyle the Anneliese sleeves and chest seam, because the world needs more short sleeved dresses! Sadly, this pattern needs work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Casual Elegance I am usually a size small in PC, but decided to order an XS based on a review describing the dress as having excess fabric in the skirt. For reference I weigh 118 lbs. I am 5'8" and measure 36, 24, 36. Had to exchange for a small. The dress fit like a glove and I needed a bit more room in the bust area. I also wear it with a wide leather belt and boots and it looks divine. Love the soft and feminine muted colors. Very unique dress. Add a jacket or cardigan and you are good for Fall...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed! This dress does not belong in the Winter Collection Catalogue. The description and photo belied it's actual colors and fit. Like another reviewer said - if you like pink and light aqua this dress is for you. I ordered a small and it did not flatter me at all - I'm a slim 6....and for the money - sadly it has to be returned. I'm disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish it looked like the picture I love pockets, I need pockets. I hate having to carry and look after a bag for my stuff. BUT, in the picture the dress had a lot of bronze and while the background was teal, it was very muted in the picture. To my dismay, the actual dress was blue and pink. If those are your colors you will like it. They aren't my colors so the dress is on its way back to PC. I wish the catalog could get the image colors closer to the actual fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress This is the second dress I've bought from Peruvian collection. Once again, I'm not disappointed. The colours in the fabric are so vibrant. The fabric is excellent quality and drapes nicely. My only slight criticism of the dress is that it is rather looser round the midriff and waist than I anticipated. But that doesn't detract from the beautiful hang and movement of it. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely dress, but fit isn't for me Way too much fabric from the seam at the waist down. I usually wear a large. I'm not obese but this dress made me look so fat . I should pay more attention to the way the model is posed. I'm sure she's wearing an XS and doesn't have much of a shape. After taking another look at the photos, each one looks as if she's holding/pulling the dress or she is in motion so the skirt is swinging. On the positive, the colors were beautiful and the fabric was fantastic. Such a shame that it didn't work for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress This dress just didn't work for me, but I have to say that it's beautiful, none the less. I am full-busted, and the seam is above my natural waist by a few inches; it just wasn't flattering. The print is absolutely gorgeous; the colors just sing, and would seem to flatter most skin types. I see that PC has carried the print forward in different colorations and styles. I would wish for this coloration in a simple tee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and comfortable Always look forward to wearing this dress, as it is so soft, easy fitting, and comfortable for a long day. The subtle pattern and colors make it interestingly different but not flashy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely dress but .... The first thing is that the dress has a pattern on a green background. I thought from the catalogue picture that it was brown, so I was completely surprised when it arrived. (And it took a long time to arrive. It took more than a month for the order to be filled.) The second thing is that the hem is EXTREMELY uneven. It is about five inches longer on the sides than in the front, so I have to pay $20 to have it hemmed. When that is done, it will be pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary This is a wonderful dress. Compliments the body and has a flow to it. A little pricey but wel worth it. Would like it to be an inch or two shorter but not a deal beaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress This is a beautiful dress. The pattern is just gorgeous and the fabric substantial. LOVE pockets on dresses, and this one doesn’t disappoint! Very flattering on; fits like a dream!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I hoped This dress is a great idea, but the waist seam is very high, cutting me off at a very unflattering point and flowing wide from there. So the waist is loose and flowy and not at all flattering on my hourglass figure. I love the pockets, but if this is how the design needs to be in order to accommodate pockets, I'll do without!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully flattering and wearable. This is a lovely and comfortable dress. The colours are gorgeous and the fabric is soft and hangs well. It also washes well. It is beautifully designed and skims rather than clings. I did wish it had 3/4 sleeves for Autumn but I can see why the designer chose cap sleeves to balance the graceful, flared skirt. I think it has a relaxed vibe and looks good with sandals and flats. I am size 8 in most British brands and the XS fits well. I am 5ft 6ins and it falls to ankle-length on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful Dress This dress is beautifully cut and fits perfectly. The fabric looks and feels wonderfully luxurious. I will definitely be shopping at Peruvian Connection again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STUNNING! The fabric weight drapes beautifully, the fit of the bodice is slenderizing, the inset sleeves sharpen the shoulder, the skirt drops forgivingly over the tummy then swirls below, and the pockets allow me to stand relaxed. This is my favorite Peruvian Connection dress in a closet full of your beautiful clothes. Please make this cut again and again in solids, with 3/4 sleeves, etc. I am 5'2" and the length is just above the floor in wedges. Sizing is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had to have it! I saw this dress and had to have it. I ordered a size 12 and it fits like a glove. I do have a larger bust so the waist is always a little too high on me. But the fabric is gorgeous, the print is divine and I LOVE it. The pockets are super deep and it just feels feminine and lovely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great dress This dress fits me pretty well. I am 5’7” and long waisted and the waistline is a little high, but not a problem. As one reviewer noted, it has an asymmetrical hem. The front comes to about 3” above my ankles and the sides cover my ankle bone. I purchased a size medium. The print and colors are beautiful. I think this is a dress to wear with flat or wedge sandals rather than the high heels it is shown with online. It has a more casual vibe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Dress for a tall gal! I wish this came in a petite cut. Dress is lovely, the fabric is beautiful. It is just cut too long in the torso to look good on an average-height woman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right This dress was a very pleasant surprise. It is not snug in the waist but falls away in a very nice line. I will go to this dress often for fun occasions. I love the color too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress The colors are very rich and the dress is nicely made. The hemline is somewhat asymmetrical, which is not evident from the picture. The dress is about 3"-4" inches longer at the sides than it is in the front and back. I am having it altered so that looks more like the photo in the catalog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Requiem for a short girl The Anneliese Dress is beautiful, the fabric exceptional and so refreshingly feminine. I was excited to receive it. However, it is made for a much taller figure and I would have had to cut too much off to make it work for me. The model in the magazine is probably 6 feet tall. I should have known better. Tall girls will look sensational in the dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and comfortable! I love this dress! It flatters my pear shape, is substantial, has gorgeous colors and flows beautifully. Thank you P.C. for these lovely turquoise and coral colors! I wear it now and in the autumn will add a P.C. cardigan and be set to go.
